Law review articles are not nearly bloggy enough.
David Ogden Altmouse Steirs drew this cartoon of me at the last Wisconsin Oktoberfest. It is a good likeness, except for some obvious differences! Can you spot them?
UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal finally catches up with Altmouse! Ten years ago I wrote a law review article about how law review articles weren't very good and that nobody read them. Of course, nobody read my article. They were too partisan back then!
I do not like law review articles. They are incredibly self-indulgent. The lawprofs who write them like to ride their own strange hobbyhorses. They are obsessed with trivia. The writing wanders off on inexplicable tangents and the authors never seem to engage with serious legal issues. It is almost as if law review articles are a giant vanity press!
The cure? Blogging.
UPDATE: Why do skaters like Sasha Baron Cohen wear these silly outfits?
With those flesh colored tights, it is like we are seeing her sanitary napkin over her crotch! This is disgusting. I did not always think so. However, a skating expedition with David Ogden Altmouse Steirs when he was small, and when I was having my "woman time," convinced me otherwise. Only partisans refuse to learn from their mistakes.
To this day, though, he dislikes Smucker's Preserves. How fascinating.
